John Mayer Sticks Up For Jessica Simpson
John Mayer sticks up for his ex-girlfriend Jessica Simpson in his latest blog entry, titled “DON’T EX WITH TEXAS.” Get it? Get it??? Oh, that Mayer.
Lately, Jessica‘s been getting a lot of flack for screwing up the performance of her current flame, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. Dallas crashed out of the NFL play-offs earlier this week when the New York Giants beat them 21-17. Here’s John putting up his dukes for poor ol’ Jessica:
“Dear Dallas and Surrounding Areas,
This isn’t a sports blog, and it isn’t a publicity stunt. (but have at me if it feels right.)
This is about doing what I think is right as a person, in this case speaking my mind.
I have never known anyone to have more pride in their home state and their upbringing in it than Jessica Simpson has in Texas. I don’t really follow sports, but I have played some of my biggest and best concerts in your state, and having witnessed how dynamic the spirit there is, I’m betting emotions are running high right about now.
All witty barbs, blogs, and fashion policing aside, that girl loves Texas more than you know. It’s one of her most defining traits as a person. So please don’t try and take that away from her. (You probably wouldn’t be able to, but it’s less work for all involved.)
I just thought it would mean something coming from the guy who has the absolute least to gain from this. And if I’m out of line in having written it, too bad. I can spare a Wednesday’s worth of bad press if it means sticking up for a good soul.
How sweet of him!
